"Mom, can I move in?"

"Sure honey!"

#2 cynet is coming to the roost. I am thrilled!

Lots of adjustments, Dh & I have not had people in house for several years. A prolonged visit or two maybe, but not a "live-in"! She's all grown-up too, not a kid I can mother around much! (OK, OK, so I'll still try, but I'm sure she'll remind me, lol.)

Dd is leaving her college dorm tomorrow, with degree in hand, and entering that sometimes scarey place of "getting a real job". She'll stay with us until she gets on her feet. Lots of job interviews and testing ahead.

I tried to mark her approximate route on the picture above, hope she has good weather. I'm envious of the driving will be a good adventure for her. She'll be camping or hotelling it while on her way, stopping to see the Arch and other notables.

"COME ON DOWN E! The weather is for perfect swimming and the huge night skies await your star gazing.

Love ya babe.

Congrats to my baby girl

The only female in her group who has successfully gotten her Jump Wings.

I am SO unbelievably proud of my girl. Blown-out knee in high school sports, plates, pins....running 8-minute miles in the Georgian heat....being put in your place by superiors....jumping off 250' buildings and out of planes....all things I would never have even attempted.

You go girl. You do ANYTHING your heart desires. Follow your dreams.

I'll be there to support you.

Yeah, I know what it all "means". It's heavy stuff. She is scheduled to deploy June '09. Yes ma'am, you'll have your quilt before you go. I promised, and my promises are good.
